These gatherings are simple. We start with setting the kavanah, the intention for our immersion, for getting ready to move from weekday into Shabbat. Combining short check-ins, teachings and meditations, we prepare together for immersion. Immersing is the most important part, letting the river re-freshen. We immerse in pairs or trio's, with bathing suits...(it is a public beach after all).
